I think Germany will most likely land some fighters for scrambling in the Med. How would you combat this?

RE: New Carriers - For Better or For Worse?
The USS Lexington took two torpedo hits and 3 bombs during the Battle of the Coral Sea and continued flight operations until the battle was over. Some explosions later sunk it, but that’s pretty impressive. That was before they started putting torpedo hulls on the carriers.
The USS Yorktown dodged 8 torpedos in that battle. Got all busted up with bombs and scrambled back for the defense of Midway after a few days worth of repairs.
If they were so easy to kill why didn’t they just kill them before they did so much damage to the Japanese fleet? When the reality is every ship and plane is pretty much focused on taking out said carriers.
They are two hit pieces for sure.
RE: Battleships are too Expensive
SB is the shore bombardment.
I hate staring down a navy with a few 2-hit capital ships. I’m just thinking in my head how much it sucks that I need 4 hits before I start taking ships out. If you have that you will never get naval strafed.
RE: What to use for setup and rules?
I think I would prefer to use the Alpha rules. I plan on using the global Alpha +2. I assume this is what you mean?
Edit (again): Ok, so I tried to use alpha, but I do have a couple of questions if anyone can help out. Does the US get the OOB IPC set with 17 to start +40 when they go to war? Also, it seems that only US NO’s that are applicable to the Pacific are 2-4, not 1-4. Just a little confused on NO’s and income I guess for the US.
Buy Bomber first turn. Dont bomb R1 Start campaign strategic Bombing campaign R2 .Also there is a Chance Russian fighters wont be in Moscow.Buy tank and Mec units as well.
Then R2 buy 5-6 Inf for Paris and rest on Mec and then same again go after go. Find Mec Move To East front quick dont waste time on Industrial complexs.Drive for Leniongrad with Main force first via inland route not Baltic coast as this can force a retreat by Leningrad defenders.
JAPS- Keep 4 jap bombers for bombing moscow. Drive jap land force thru north china. R3 build a Airbase in suiyuyan R4 Start bombing Moscow with 4 bombers. Meanwhile You’ve kept up your Bombing with the two german bombers- This wrecks havoc with USSR right at its time of crisis and realy limits what they can put in. Also be moving bulk of forces against russian front as well. This plan has worked for me even when the worst luck happened to my bombers. I still did enough damage for it to be effective.It also demoralises the Russian who are already coming to terms with an early German attack on R2.
Is an airbase necessary here? Am I missing something?
